Michael Vick

Ripped By Animal Org. --

You STILL Don't Care About Dogs!

Michael Vick doesn't really care about animals ... and should NOT be allowed to own another dog ... this according to the ASPCA.

After Vick went on CNN and told Piers Morgan he hopes to get a new puppy for his kids, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals immediately spoke out against the NFL star who spent 19 months in prison for illegal dogfighting. 

"Vick’s journey toward rehabilitation and redemption has not reflected any direct concern for the wellbeing of animals, and we’ve never heard him express a shred of empathy toward the dogs he brutalized and killed" ... the org. tells TMZ.

The ASPCA continues, "Rather than talk about the horrors and brutalities of dog fighting, Vick has instead chosen to focus on the consequences of getting caught."

"Vick’s actions have been simply self-serving and not remotely expressing remorse. Because of this, the ASPCA has serious concerns about Vick’s ability to be a responsible pet guardian."

In other words, don't expect to see Vick at the next ASPCA adoption event.

NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! This is a monster. If he didn't "know" that drowning, electrocuting and shooting dogs for being poor fighters was wrong then, he won't know it's wrong now. Only a psychotic would treat any living thing that way. You wouldn't let a child molester be around children, you don't let an abuser like him around dogs. Period.

Lot of dog owners shouldn't own dogs, have seen a lot of abuse and neglect over the years, lot of pet owners don't deserve pets, the abuse is bad, the neglect is just as bad.

Cruely to animals is how serial killers start. Vick should never be allowed to have another dog. I would also question the custody of his children.

And that is why I give to the ASPCA-they take animal abuse seriously. Vick is a sick MF who only feels sorry that he got caught and lost out on money in the NFL. Anyone who did what he did should be banned for life from owning a pet ever again.

He should NEVER be allowed to own another pet of any kind for the rest of his life. He mutilated, tortured and raped animals. He electrocuted dogs and slammed their heads into the concrete. Why can people always buy themselves out of trouble.

People really burn my grits going in on Michael Vick like this. All over some DOGS which are considered PROPERTY by the US government. The ASPCA didn't hear any remorse for what he did to the DOGS?? WHAT DID HE DO?? He gave $$ to the people who fought the dogs and he did WAY MORE to pay for it than some CHILD MOLESTERS have. You people talking about the slow torturous death he should endure??? What's wrong with you? Get a grip, he's paid his dues, he continues to pay. MERCY on you should your infractions ever be made a matter for public scrutiny....

Lets just be real here, white people care more about dogs than they do minorities. It is the same reason people will be up in arms over Vick for years to come and will sweep racial atrocities under the rug like Trayvon and Zimmerman.

there is something about his attiude, or ora in this clip that is not settling well with me.. he is trying so hard to appear soft spoken,sorry, and remorseful.. but it is a crock of ****.. If his kids wanted a dog sooo badly then i would think he would convince his baby mama to get them one.. but he certainly shouldnt be able to... and if his kids dont accept that then maybe he should explain to them how he is a dog killer.

He's a worthless piece of trash. I can't believe the NFL let him back in and pay him a huge pay cheque still, shame on them. The ASPCA is correct, he has never once showed any remorse for the dogs he tortured, just his remorse over being CAUGHT! I hope this man gets what he deserves soon. Someone should yank all of his teeth out and his finger nails. Then they should force him to fight bare handed with someone who has knives. It's basically the same thing he did to his 'training dogs'. What a piece of sh!t.

I am a dog owner, and horrified by his actions IN THE PAST> he has paid for his crimes due to societys laws, I just wish he would stay away from animals all together, BUT all this effort in punishment for this can and should now be put toward saving our children from all the bad things out there....he has paid his dues even if I would still like to see him pay much more.....eye for a eye type of punishment.......
